For Peter Shankman’s Friends

Thank you for coming to this special books page for friends of Peter Shankman. We first met in person in May 2009 in Paris, France. The backstory is that the previous New Year’s Eve, Peter had posted a video from his water-view patio stating that he wanted to “take HARO world-wide” in 2009. I sent him an email right away, telling him I’d be in Paris in May. His immediate response {slightly re-worded] was, “Heck, yes!”

We all know that Peter is a very generous person, and to continue that generosity, I am offering my books at a discount to you, or alternatively, part of your purchase can go to one of his favorite charities — Best Friends Animal Society — or you can do a combination of both. The mission of BFAS is, “SAVE THEM ALL — Every day, more than 4,100 dogs and cats are killed in America’s shelters, just because they don’t have safe places to call home. But every day, there’s something each of us can do to help save those lives.”


I will be traveling June 5 to July 12 — all books will be shipped within one day of my return home. Thank you for your understanding!

Mathematics Professor Alfred Dunningham, PhD, famous for his seminars Detective Work Made Easier Through Mathematics, is brought in to help make sense of the pieces of the puzzle. The police apprehend their suspect and the newspaper headlines announce it. Another body is found; it fits the pattern as the previous killings. Do they have the real killer?

. . . Featuring Mathematics Professor Alfred Dunningham, PhD
Disappearances in the MEDITERRANEAN — One passenger on a cruise in the Mediterranean Sea is disappearing after each day in port. Cruise line security is beefed up, and Interpol is brought on board to investigate. Nothing unusual is found, although one of the investigators thinks he’s found a mathematical connection. Professor Alfred Dunningham, in Paris at a math symposium, is toasted for his work in solving the Famous Sites Murders in Sydney, Australia. He’s called; the pleadings work, and he and his wife fly to meet and board the ship. There is some similarity to the Sydney case, but the Professor dismisses that notion—“Too obvious; would look like copy cat,” he says. Can he solve the mystery before the end of the cruise?

BookCover-ROP-300dpiremembering our parents . . . Stories and Sayings from Mom & Dad — This gift book is a nice collection of over five dozen heart-warming stories from “people next door” to celebrities, war heroes, Olympic athletes, etc. One of my favorite stories is the two-page hand-written letter that I received from former Major League Baseball player Rubén Amaro, Sr. The following postscript was included with his story, an indication of what family and legacy mean to him. “Thank you for the privilege to once again remember Santos & Josefina” (his parents). Family legacy is so very important — one day you just might ask yourself, What will be my legacy?

Questions-Dad-coverQuestions to Bring You Closer to Dad — What would you want to know about your dad? This book helps you as it defines “Types of Dad and their Characteristics.” Why is that important? Because knowing what “type of Dad” he is guides you to appropriate ways to start conversations, ask questions, etc. What if your dad is no longer alive? The book shows you how you can still find out about him. With over 120 questions, this book is a great way to strengthen the bond whether it’s the child asking the questions or the dad filling them in for his children.

Questions to MOMcover Questions to Bring You Closer to Mom — Similar to the “Dad book” in that types of Mom are listed and defined, I used this book as a way of starting conversations with my mom when she was in her 90s. If you’re not sure how to begin that conversation, use the book as an excuse to get started. Just say, Hey, Mom. I got this book and I’d like to ask you a question from it; would that be okay? It will be more than okay — she will soon be asking you, When are we going to get around to answering more of those questions from that book? Believe me, it works!

GrandmaGrandpa-coverQuestions to Bring You Closer to Grandma & Grandpa — Learning about the grandparents is decidedly different than Mom or Dad because of the generation that’s between grandparents and grandchildren — namely the parents! Using a different approach you’ll find the experience just as rewarding, if not more so! One thing that’s clear is that not all grandparents are the same, and you’ll find that out right away once you start with this book. Grandparents: If you want to open the pathways for conversations with your grandchildren, get a copy of this book and give it to them after you’ve written inside, “This is your license to ask us anything!”
